Careers and Mindfulness

I’ve written about finding my way through my career path and how I no longer want to do what I have been doing. I have been doing some work on getting my insurance credentials in place so that I can do private practice, but I’m not sure that this is truly what I want to…

Everyday Mindfulness

Creating mindfulness daily can seem like a huge undertaking. Some days, mindfulness seems so far from where I am, but then other days, I realize just how simple and freeing, and important it really is. My day yesterday was a perfect example.

Mindfulness and Play

I haven’t spent a lot of time researching all of this, but…
